Thoughts on RA Dickey? I grabbed him in a mixed 12 team standard roto league after another owner cut bait on him. Hes just been an ERA and WHIP drain on my team so far.

 

Theres an innings cap, if that makes a difference.

Melvin says #Athletics need to get Johnson straightened out. Will close by committee in meantime.

Susan Slusser ‏@susanslusser 7m
For those asking, "closer by committee" means Doolittle, Gregerson, Otero, Cook. #Athletics

 

 

 

 

Anyone have guess on who from that list will be the guy to grab? Doolittle's a lefty, Cook just returned from the DL, so Gregerson?

WGR 550 Buffalo reports the Bills are unlikely to re-sign or use the franchise tag on free agent FS Jairus Byrd.

 

"The two sides have had productive discussions, and while things could change, it seems at this point that the two sides will split," writes Jeremy White. White's colleague, Joe Buscaglia, is arguably the top Bills beat reporter and adds that the Bills "explored all their options, including a trade." GM Doug Whaley shot a "substantial offer" Byrd's way, but the 27-year-old seems intent on testing the market. The deadline for the Bills to use the franchise tag is Monday at 4 PM. Byrd is the top free-agent safety available.

If the Chiefs extend Smith it doesn't matter if Bowe contracts

I know Bowe was disappointing, I had him on one team (picked him up in another), but he wasn't bad in the second half starting with the Bills game:

 

Bills: 7-67

Broncos: 4-57 1TD

Chargers: 5-51 1 TD

Broncos: 3-56 (he had an @15 yard TD called back because the LT was lined up too far back, BS call, should have been a 4-70 1TD game)

Redskins: 4-70 1TD

Raiders: 3-24 (this was the game that the Raiders decided to not tackle Jamal Charles on screen passes)

Colts: 5-46

Chargers: DNP, whole team rested

Colts: 8-150 1TD

 

So, last 8 games played he was 39-528 4 TDs, and should have had 40-543 5 TDs. While that isn't earth shattering, it does show that Smith targeted him a lot more in the second half. He really only had 1 big game, offset by one bad one where Oakland's D let Charles run wild. He was really consistent.

 

He could be a very nice value next year if people don't look at the progression. He will probably be drafted pretty late. I would take 70-80 receptions, 1000 yards and 8-10TDs for a WR3.

 

 

I remember reading a RotoWorld blurb that said he was working out of the slot more towards the end of the season. I know PFF used to provide snap counts for free, but I think they charge now. Im not sure if anyone else provides stats that could confirm this.

Where did you come up with the 20% number for Lynch? A study?

 

Also, Decker will be a FA and Denver may not have the cap room to re-sign him.
